Saginaw, State Street Testimonials:
Very caring therapists that helped tremendously. My range of motion improved and pain level decreased! (James)
“I have had many PT experiences in the last several years and this was by far the best treatment I have ever had. I improved at a tremendous rate and could not be happier! My therapist was excellent and the rest of the staff was friendly and amazing.”
"Mel did an amazing job working with me. I was in a car accident and had a lot of weakness and pain in my hip. I no longer fall as much and can start doing more with my son. Thanks so much Mel!" (Courtney)
Wow! They made me feel like family. I tend to ask questions and they answered them all without hesitation! Made sure I was doing the exercises properly. (Shirley)
My second time at this facility, LOVE IT! The therapists are excellent, understanding & sympathetic. I started with post operative therapy, being very stiff, sore and limited in strength & mobility. Within 12 visits I have gained 100% back in both areas! I will recommend this facility to anyone in the area. Very pleased! If I ever need PT again this is my "GO TO" place! (Karri) 
"When I was first sent to see Jessica I had a lot of reservations, but she explained everything in detail and talked to me so I could be more at ease. She is amazing and was instrumental at diagnosing and then following up after my surgery. This helped me to feel complete and brought back my activity to a healthy and productive level. Experience was way beyond my expectation!" (Tammy)
"Jessica was awesome. She did a great job and I would definitely recommend her." (Steven)
The clinic is always clean which is so important during cold and flu season. Every staff member is personable and greets you each time you enter the clinic. The knowledge of the therapist was of the highest caliber. All exercises were explained so a lay person can understand the technique and why it is important. I would highly recommend Renue Physical Therapy clinic to all. (Janice)
"I feel I have had a very good experience with my therapy after surgery. My improvement exceeded my expectations. Very friendly staff." (Dianna)
"I have been other places for physical therapy but they don't even compare to Renue! Renue will always get a top rating from me! (Irene)
"Very satisfied, never had to wait & PT (Mel) was very knowledgable." (Shirley)
